Infinitely easier than having multiple phones
If you know what a burner phone is, then you already understand the concept behind this app. Except, it's SO MUCH better because you only need a single phone to use multiple phone numbers. How it works: you pick a phone number, and give that number to people. They call the number, which then calls your own phone's number. The caller never learns your "real" number, so it stays completely safe. If you never want that person to contact you again, you can burn the number you gave them, and that's it. They can't get in touch anymore. The only challenge with using the app, which you quickly get use to, is you must press the "1" button to accept an incoming call. After you do it a few times it becomes a habit and is not a big deal. I highly recommend this app, I use it all the time and find it to be very reliable and convenient.

Awesome to hear!
We're also working on in-app calling for iOS, so you'll be able to route the calls directly through the app and get rid of pressing 1. Thanks for your patience!
Horrible, Spam experience!
This has been the most horrible experience! I signed up for a burner number, & downloaded this app, to advertise a truck I have for sale. In the past 2-1/2 days, I have received over a dozen spam text messages & at least 73 spam phone calls! Day & night! All routed through the app & sent to my regular phone number. The service is calling random people & then calling my line, with those random people’s numbers showing up. When I answer, the confused people are asking me who I am, why I called them, etc. But, they “called” me! On some of the calls I don’t answer, I tried calling back to follow up & it was the same thing... They had never called me & had no clue what was going on, even though their numbers were showing up as missed calls. So, I said “forget this nonsense!” & I logged out of the account, then deleted the app. But, STILL, I kept receiving the automated spam calls! I finally had to just block the “burner” number that I was given so I wouldn’t keep having to deal with this nonsense! It’s been insane! This will be the last time I ever use this! How do I disconnect my line completely from this burner number???

Hi there, sorry to hear about your trouble!
It sounds like your Burner number may have been spoofed! Anyone's number, cell, landline, etc. can be spoofed, and there's not much anyone can do for it. Here's a great article on it: https://www.tripwire.com/state-of-security/security-awareness/how-to-protect-yourself-from-caller-id-spoofing/. The minutes and texts are not being deducted from your account because none of the events are actually originating from your device.
Burner works by forwarding calls to and from your Burner number to your main cell phone number. Simply deleting the app from your device doesn't burn the number or delete your account, but if you no longer want the number, you can log back into the app to burn it.
We are also more than happy to replace this Burner number for you free of charge-- just email us at email@example.com so we can get that started!
After reading another post...
You use a phone number that might have been used before. Which means you might get calls expecting someone or something else. What I do is wait and see the contact then return call/ text if it was someone I knew or expected. Best service, has saved me in ways you’d have to think about if you had a string of bad luck.
Update to Dev(8:48, 13 June 2019): I love your service and I was just trying to explain to others. It’s not your number even if you get spam, the spam comes from previous owners/users of the number. Burn the number and use a different number. This service is such a useful and blessing. I’d rather give a number out that isn’t my personal number of 5-10+years to all the places that have “said they don’t sell your info” or potential crazy.

Hi there, thanks for reviewing the Burner app!
Burners are real numbers, so it's always possible someone owned the number before you. Not to worry though, if you can't live with just blocking the numbers because there are so many, we'll replace your Burner number for you.
Happy to hear that our app has provided you with such excellent service! Thanks again for your review!
